Twilight’s Allure: A Poem


I think the world stopped for a moment

When those curtains were unraveled.

The sun, the moon, the graciousness of the universe

Laid bare in front of my slaving eyes,

I saw this planet at its finest

From the absolute divergent to my home.

And that night I could not sleep

Knowing that the world outside, for once,

Was more beautiful than my fabricated dreams.

I corroborated that my mind wouldn’t forget

How much I felt in that fraction of a second,

And I captured so many emotions

Than just the acceptance of my fate.

I lied awake knowing that even the night falters,

Sometimes the lurking demons succumb to the twilight.
